Lately I’ve been stressing out too much about writing reviews of the books I read. I really enjoy thinking about books critically, playing reviewer in even a semi-formal way. As a way of reducing the pressure of reviewing a bit, while still allowing me to write something about everything I read, I’ve decided to try keeping all my reviews to exactly 100 words. It’s a bit of a wordplay game, condensing and concentrating what I wanted to say into that small number of words. Also seems like something easy to write within a small period of time.
So for now, I’ll think of myself as the hundred word critic.
